Hi,
Two questions for forum.
First, are there any irish boys or girls thinking of going?
Do the rules still require more than three rotations before release?
I am a one rotation underarm slinger, would my technique be allowed?
An old shoulder injury limits mobility.

sling any style you like.
the rules have never really been observed. They state you have to make 2 rotations overhead. The majority of the slingers don't use an overhead technique. The classis balearic is actually a waist level and behind your back windup - not helicopter.
To be fair nobody really knows why the rules exist. Pep (bsf cheffe, doesn't see any point in them either - I have had that conversation)


Yes there should be some irish guys coming this year - shimmy (kristopher kennedy - think that's how it's spelt), is going to bring a few.
He works for fokai in ireland, so is technically an honorary chamorro Smiley
But he's definitely bringing at least a couple from ireland - as far as I know.

Drop him a line.

Hi CA. Thanks for reply.
Another Question if i may.
What are the target distances, i usually practise at about 36 to 40 metres?
That facebook page link does not seem to work?
Cheers

works for me
just google fokai and the grasshopper lounge.

distances:
men and teams: 20 metres
women and kids: 10 metres

teams can have women and kids.

20m looks really short when you're up there.
But bear in mind you're not on your own at your familiar practice range.
You're out in the public with people shouting and cheering and other slingers throwing to either side of you.
Nerves play a fairly important part Smiley

it works out quite pricey this year.
100 euros for a return ferry ticket over a few miles of water seems a bit steep to me.
But then I haven't taken a ferry anywhere for at least 20 years - so what do i know Smiley

I'll be going 0 not sure where the money's coming from yet though noidea

Whereabouts is the competition in Mallorca and what do people do getting there from the airport?

now that's always fun Smiley

On a good year pep will have booked hotel rooms and you take a taxi from the airport to the hotel and the desk clerk has your name on a list and you go to your room. (stop laughing david)
Last year was more fun.

david, silvio and I did an extra couple of days. when it came time to go to the official hotel, pep changed it.
so we went to one hotel in arenal to be told it was tho one across town. We dutifully trundled our suitcases across town - to be told that pep had changed it back to the original hotel - while we were in transit.
At which point we stayed where we were that night and got them to pick us up in the bus the following morning.

Now pep is  a last minute kind of guy. It's not unheard of for him to send the hotel details while you are on the plane to mallorca - in fact that's fairly standard.

But theoretically - contact pep and tell him you're going and he will send you the hotel details.  Cheesy Grin
It's never happened like that yet - but we live in hope Smiley

No clue where the comps and meals will be - you have to wait for the official schedule - which i believe we got on the bus last year.

If you plan on turning up mid-week, let someone know and we'll tell you where we are, hotel rooms are never an issue Smiley
If you're lucky someone will pick you up from the airport - if not, it's a taxi job - bring cash !
The swiss guys did that last year, just appeared mid competition.

@funda iacunda - is that you jorn ?
we missed you last year Smiley
silvio had no official translater Wink
